Chapter three of George Romero's mighty zombie trilogy has big footsteps to follow. Night of the Living Dead was a classic that revitalized a certain corner of the cinema, and Dawn of the Dead was nothing short of epic. Day of the Dead, however, has always been regarded as a comedown compared to those twin peaks--and perhaps it is. But on its own terms, this is an awfully effective horror movie, made with Romero's customary social satire and cinematic vigor--when a "retrained" zombie responds to the "Ode to Joy," the film is in genuinely haunting territory. The story is set inside a sunken military complex, where Army and medical staff, supposedly working on a solution to the zombie problem, are going crazy (strongly foreshadowing the final act of 28 Days Later). Tom Savini's makeup effects could make even hardcore gore fans tear off their own heads in amazement. --Robert HortonSee all Editorial Reviews

The one character I absolutely loved in this film is Captain Rhodes. I don't think I ever seen another film that can capture the spirit of the character. Captain Rhodes is the only character in this entire film who made actual sense. The head scientists, Dr Logan, also known as Frankenstein for slicing up the zombie specimens wanted to train zombies in a manner similar to how one might train kids. We slowly learn that Dr Logan has a serious mental problem and his experiment is delusional but by that time it was too late for everyone to realize. Captain Rhodes allowed Dr Logan a benefit of a doubt in his experiment. Throughout the film we see Captain Rhodes becoming increasing agitated but the Captain wanted the experiment to proceed since the scientists are so sure of a solution.
Right from the get go Captain Rhodes appears arrogant, cocky, and hard headed in terms of trying to get him to see the scientist's side of the problem. However, after watching the film a few times over the years what I accepted is that Captain Rhodes is always asking the right question which is: exactly what the scientists are doing? Throughout the movie Captain Rhodes gave the science team enough shadow of a doubt to allow them to progress and come out with a possible solution even though his men are increasingly frustrated. However, each interaction with each other turns up more questions and doubts until eventually their anger and frustration turns them against each other. I too always questioned exactly what the scientists intentions were. Not once did any side actually came up with anything remotely possible and even Dr Logan's trained zombie concept seem flawed in many ways.
The thing I most dislike about this film is that at the end Captain Rhodes not only turned into a murderous buffoon but also a traitor and coward to his own men. He died in the most horrendous manner possible in the entire film. Not only that, he died from the very experiment that he allowed to continue with a smart zombie known as Bub. Throughout the entire film, Captain Rhodes did not kill a single zombie. He only killed unarmed scientists and killed his own men by abandoning them.
Whenever I watch this movie, I secretly wish that Captain Rhodes turned out to be the hero. I honestly wish the could remake this film but instead change the point of the movie where Captain Rhodes turned into a complete idiot and got everyone killed.
Overall a great movie to see Captain Rhodes interaction. I bought the collectors Blu Ray edition and wow, it is a major upgrade from my old dvd copy of the film. Absolutely love it. Now I only wish they released the Ultimate Edition of Dawn of the Dead on Blu Ray.
I double dipped x3 on Day of the Dead
Two versions actually have "there own" exclusives
are they all worth owning (That all depends)
I personally would say no the Original first blu ray put out by Anchor Bay is a cheap BR in terms of PQ
I love Day as much as the previous two films so i have all three (Need to sell the Anchor Bay version though)
Try watch the entire horrible first season of Fear the Walking dead
Greg Nicotero dug out the original Day of the dead script and hand it into AMC and they copied alot of Day of the dead to make there "New" #1 So-called hit
Gonna try and give the run down to each disc and all the extras they come with

Anchor Bay put out maybe 6-8 classic horror films on Blu Ray before just giving up and being lazy
this is one of them!
The Original first blu ray of Day by Anchor Bay is the weakest of the 3 the PQ isn't at HD standards

Scream Factory does a bang-up job just with there exclusive documentary alone makes the Scream Factory version to be a must have
Over all go out of your way to own the Arrow Home Video BR and the Scream Factory BR
they are both must haves
the arrow home video version is still pretty cheap you can get it direct from arrow or amazon.uk for less then $20.00 us
I allways enjoyed how well Day Of The Dead was made. It's minimalistic approach of this film plus the emotional rollercoaster over the last half of the film is excellent. Shout!/Scream Factory has again made a Grade A Product with the restoration of Day Of the Dead. The Film wasn't in this good of condition when I originally saw it in theatres almost 30 years ago in the Movie theatre.
